WHAT IS FEBRUARY?

Zodiac Signs – are Aquarius (until February 18) and Pisces (February 19 forward).

Birthstones – is the amethyst. It symbolizes piety, humility, spiritual wisdom, and sincerity.

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY TO EVERYONE!

Valentine’s Sayings:

Roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet, and so are you. But the roses are wilting, the violets are dead, the sugar bowl’s empty and so is your head.

Kind, intelligent, loving and hot – this describes everything you are not.

I want to feel your sweet embrace, but please don’t take that paper bag off of your face.

The most effective way to remember your wife’s birthday is to forget it once.

A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.

When a man opens the door of his car for his wife, you can be sure of one thing: either the car is new or the wife.

You never lose by loving. You always lose by holding back.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE! Thanks to our great residents & RVer’s for making Desert View such a great place! Also, a sincere thanks to the Conway Family (park owners) for caring about residents and caring about how the park is maintained. Little things they do may go unnoticed but we want to acknowledge their thoughtfulness each year by selecting a few residents who have had a difficult year to receive a rent discount in January – this is referred to as “Holiday Cheer”. We appreciate also their donation of turkeys for our Thanksgiving dinner and hams for our Christmas dinner!

 

Welcome back seasonal residents and RVer’s! We are happy to see familiar faces again and new faces are always welcome here! If there is anything we can do (within reason) to make your stay at Desert View more comfortable, please let us know!
